Today while internet websites were going black, I attended the NY Tech Meetup emergency session located on the streets of New York. Right outside of Senator Schumer’s office!
It was a fantastic turn out, and really great to see everyone rallying behind a common cause. I don’t have any audio, because it turns out geeks are kinda quiet and shy. Go figure.
This is the first episode of a new series Tech and the City Extroverted Developer hosted by Jim Wallace and Ben Gundersen.
Being that this is the first podcast I’ve ever recorded and produced, there’s probably audio issues, additional ums and ahs that I didn’t edit out correctly and other issues with the quality in general. Hope to fix these as we gain more experience in this medium.
I’ve wanted to do a podcast since the term was coined, but I’ve never managed to find someone else who was willing to co-host with me or I was never able to narrow in on a topic that had enough content and I was very passionate about. But that has all changed.
